Located over 50km from the centre of Hanoi, a lotus pond in An Phu commune, My Duc district, Hanoi, is in full bloom, attracting a large number of visitors to take photos.

The scenery is beautiful thanks not only to the fragrant lotus flowers but also the limestone mountains, creating a charming landscape.

Previously, local people in An Phu commune cultivated rice, but the agricultural production always faced many difficulties and crop failures due to flooding. In recent years, they have moved to growing lotus, bringing about a high level of economic efficiency.
